now in the country with an ever-increasing size of government that's taking over and controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south africa and along the road i was surprised to see the number of whites would seem to identify thems

there. the top 10% wealthiest have half the country's income. the other half goes to the bottom 90%. combine that with two political facts. one, president obama is at or near all time lows in popularities. he would be a drag on his own party if elections were held. the gop's party hit bottom. an r next to your name in swing areas is also a drag as far as voters are concerned. 2014 may not be as predictable as everyone is making it out to be and why it's critical for politicians to be on the right side of this message. buffalo springfield said there is something happening out here and what it is ain't exactly clear. an adviser tried to spell this out in a memo that can be seen in an open letter to washington in the establishment of both parties. they argue that the growing gap is pushing the country to a tipping point. underneath this turmoil, you can see the shape of a populous movement that will in time move the politicians to action or throw them out of office. the country is moving towards new leaders who will be problem solvers and build institutions capable of making a differe
do? no one wants to live off the bear minimum. but there is a support system in this country that is very important to the stability of society. earlier today, president obama slammed the idea of dependency, and stuck up for the hard-working people on government assistance with low wages. >> these programs are not typically hammocks for people to just lie back and relax. these programs are almost always temporary means for hard-working people to stay afloat while they try to find a new job. or going to school to retrain themselves for the jobs that are out there. or sometimes just to cope with a bout of bad luck. >> who do you think is telling the truth? o'reilly or the president of the united states? you be the judge. meanwhile, there is rush limbaugh. he knows a thing or two about drug addiction. limbaugh is also wasting air time attacking poor people on food stamps this holiday season. he said food stamps are making poor people obese. >> most of the childhood obesity is minority. african-american and this story links it to food stamps! which makes total sense. we've got ne
obama's speech. it was from the center for american progress. [video clip] >> for one thing, these trends are bad for our economy. one study finds that growth is more fragile and recession is more frequent in countries with greater inequality. .hat makes sense when families have less to spend, businesses have fewer customers. households rack up greater mortgage and credit card debt. topentrated wealth at the will not result in broadly based consumer spending that drives our economy and with less regulation, it may contribute to risky speculative bubbles. rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for families and social cohesion. not just because we tend to trust our institutions us, but studies show we actually tend to test -- trust each other less. host: that was the president yesterday talking about income inequality. toare turning to all of you get your stories. are you able to move up the economic ladder? we have the lines divided by age. start calling us now. you can put your comments on facebook or tweet us as well. a response from house speaker john boehner's s
nation has lost its greatest son. >> a short time ago president obama had this to say about nelson mandela from the white house. >> his journey from a prisoner to a president embodied the promise that human beings and countries can change for the better. his commitment to transfer power and reconcile with those who jailed him set an example that all humanity should aspire to, whether in the lives of nations or our own personal lives. the fact that he did it all with grace and with humor and an ability to acknowledge his own imperfections only makes the man that much more remarkable. >> the president went on to say he didn't think it was likely we'd see mandela's like again. joining us now via telephone is former d.c. mayor, current council member marion barry who was i think you were mayor still when nelson mandela was released from prison in 1992. am i correct, mr. mayor? >> absolutely, derek. my relationship goes before then, one thanksgiving day we sat in at the south african embassy on massachusetts avenue starting a whole movement and on april 4th of thsame year out of that 5,

benefits. what is it that the republicans have against the down trodden in this country? those folks who are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too mu

have 48 million people who before obama care had no health insurance at all, what is the republicans' position? what is their solution to the fact that we spend so much more than any other country? their solution is to end medicare as we know it, transform it into a voucher system, give a senior citiz citizcitizen $8,000 and say good luck. make massive cuts in medicaid, and you're even seeing in states around the country now, republican governors whose states could have free medicaid for three years. doesn't cost them a nickel. for all of their low-income people, they are saying no, we don't want it. so what is very clear about this whole situation is the republicans have nothing to say. all they can do is play the anti obama care card, and hope that it fails. and they're going to lose on that. of. >> now, paralleling back to the alabama-auburn football game about never giving up, this was one game in one season. there's going to be another season and another game and the republicans are going to never stop playing it, because they have gone after the entitlement programs, the big th
nothing to do with this. one republican voted for it. this is wholly obama's. >> this is something they will applaud him for. >> the country may be so distorted. we become so accustomed to the welfare state that we love obamacare. shoving people into medicare without enough doctors doesn't work. bill: it sounds great on paper. but reality implementation. >> the implementation of medicare, medicaid and social security was very rough. eventually they work if they love it. >> it's about the core idea which doesn't work. nothing in any -- you have never had a social program pass on a party line. >> i would like to see what we do with canada. bill: gentlemen, thank you. i can't wait until next week. tucker, alan, good luck on the autobahn. martha: a team of divers on a recovery mission searching for bodies. they did not believe the they would find anyone alive. this man trapped in an air pocket for three days. some people calling this a miracle. martha: a fisherman was trapped in a ship for days. divers are looking to see what they can find. most expecting to find bodies until necessity
? that's easier said than done. >> i hope it goes away. i'm the author of the bill to repeal obama care. we want this to go away because it's killing jobs in this country. killing the economy. it's hurting people's lives in a real-time basis. middle class -- >> does it -- sorry, ma'am, does it bug you when democrats go, yeah, they're going at bashing, but they don't have a plan of their own. there are half a dozen plans -- >> more than that. >> republicans, some say, want to annihilate this and do nothing in return. >> it's political. if you want to address the situation, do one thing -- let people buy any health insurance policy they want, anywhere in america, with no minimum federal requirement. you do that alone, you solve all sorts of problems with access to health care. then give a liability shield to anyone who wants to offer charitable health care. if you do that, you can deal with the poor, you can deal with the middle class, you can deal with the wealthy, and then this sorts itself out pretty fast. >> congressman, thank you very much. i mentioned that, as i said to the congress
